Microwave Coffee Cupcake by Bellligerent Microwave Coffee Cupcake by Bellligerent
I really wanted to take some photos of food (especially sweets), so I made a single serving microwave coffee cake. single serving is good because that way I don't end up eating too much afterwards, haha.

Aghh, please bear with me on the sloppy icing job..it was my first time icing a cupcake in like, a swirly..way.. 

This was probably one of my most frustrating efforts to just take a decent photo of food.
1) I made the cake just to take the photo haha (well, eating and enjoying it is a close second priority of course!)
2) Something happened while it was cooking and well, one side of the bottom was like, missing. So it wouldn't stand up. SO there is actually a pile of craisins holding up the cupcake in the back ;)
3) I screwed up on the icing several times and had to scrap it off probably..2 or 3 times before I finally settled for this one.

>w< what an experience..at least the finished product came out..satisfactory :)

"I made the cake just to take the photo"

I do that like, every week! haha. And I buy some ingredients I never use again or care for, I give it to someone else to eat.

This looks like such a yummy treat! nice job.

If there's some things I cannot do, it's baking desserts. So you can just imagine how much I crave for sweet things like cuppycakes and stuff!! Pure torture! Hahaha! Anyways, I love this. As I love all of your art! :heart:

Unfortunately, baking desserts is ALL I can do! When I look at your food photography, I always admire your cooking AND photography skills ^_^
And thanks so much! You are so kind :heart:

You're so sweet to say that. I'm bad at measuring and baking is more like chemistry and measuring. I admire yours and I love your work, too, dear friend! :huggle:

I dont even know how to cook with a microwave (in fact, I don't have one. A few months ago, my family decided not to use one anymore)

haha thanks >w< to be honest, I had to scrape off the icing several times and redo it before I got this one and decided to settle for it XD

Haha I can cook ONLY with a microwave ): well, I can use an oven too, but I don't know how to use a stove! I could've baked a cake in an oven, but I was lazy, so I opted for a microwave version :P

I dont even use icing cuz I dont have the ingredients for it at home. Besides, I don't like desserts with too much cream and icing. That's why I went for mostly fruit tarts and ice cream on the cruise.

Toaster ovens are what I use for muffins cuz they're smaller and more convenient :XD:

I happened to have some icing sugar at home XD
I decided to decorate the cupcake with icing because I thought it looked a little plain on its own :P

Ahh, I have one of those toaster ovens too! ^_^

speaking of small convenient ovens, it's pretty funny how an easy bake oven uses a lightbulb for power.
